3.2. What do I with old object-file archives?
The object-file archive format was changed from release 3.0 to
3.5 of the operating system. There is a utility to convert these
archives to the new format.
# convert oldarchive.a newarchive.a
Or you can run:
# file oldarchive.a newarchive.a
oldarchive.a: 5.0 archive
newarchive.a: 5.2 archive
That will convert all the archives in /usr/lib and /lib that
are in the old 5.0 archive format to the new 5.2 archive format.
